The Cuphead Show is a Netflix original cartoon featuring Cuphead, Mugman, and various villains from the Cuphead video game. The show follows Cuphead and Mugman’s ongoing battle with the Devil and his minions. In Season 1, only a few bosses from an extensive list were explored, so there is a lot of material left for Season 2 and subsequent seasons.

The first season of the show was a great success. In our review, we called the show amazing, stating, “Cuphead captures the essence of the popular game, offering fans old and new a surreal, exhilarating, chaotic and all-around hilarious cartoon with memorable characters and stunning animation. After Arcane and Castlevania, this is another feather in Netflix’s hat for stellar video game adaptations.”
